Rankings don't tell whole truth 3

November 12, 2004

Subscribing to The Times Higher has much to recommend it: for example, not getting the "free inside" offers meant not getting the World University Rankings booklet.

The Times Higher always stayed agnostic towards league tables - publishing the data but never signing up to the aggregation into a rank order. Now you are promoting a league table that is remarkable in its lack of sophistication. You might as well draw up a league table on the number of times that a university gets a mention in the press.
